Core Keeper is a sandbox survival game that has a rather cute style, and tons of fun buried underneath the adorable exterior. It’s a Minecraft-inspired title, through and through. But don’t let that comparison push you off. Let’s talk more about what this game does to keep the player engaged. As is par for the course with these mining games, you have to figure things out and make your own fun. Players are excepted to power up the Core as they explore the underground biomes and destroy larger and larger monsters.
There are many different professions you can make use of in this ARPG. And each one needs its own tool. And beyond that, you need to be able to see out in the darkness. That’s where torches come in. You get a fair amount of light from one torch when placed down. They can also be held in your hand to illuminate an area. These light sources are one fo the first things you should make in a new run. It’s a good idea to clear the starting area of wood first thing, then use that to make a chest, workbench, and some extra tools. Once you have that, you’re ready to move on.
How to Make Torches in Core Keeper
Here’s how to make torches in Core Keeper:
- Press the Tab key on your keyboard
- Left-click the Torch to consume 1 Wood to make 3 Torches
- Equip the torches in your action bar
- Press the corresponding button to equip the torch
- Right-click on a nearby tile to place the torch
You don’t even need to gather fuel. Just grab some wood by smashing up those big roots. Each time you make Torches in Core Keeper. you get three of them, so make as many as you can afford to. Just make sure to save a few. Aside from torches, there’s another common light source that spawns. Glow Tulips are blue flowers that emit a soft glow when planted. You can use these to add a more thematic light source to your base. However you choose to do it is up to you, but you need to get the basics done first. From there, go exploring and see what you can find. Bring some food that you cook with your shin new cooking pot, if that helps you stay alive.
Like many other items in the game, the basic crafting menu isn’t the only thing you need to learn. Pressing Tab without using the Workbench is just the first few recipes in the game. You need to craft the Basic Workbench to make simple wooden tools and items. But if you’re brand new to the game, you might not know that there’s two more benches. The Copper Anvil and Tin Workbench open up more weapon, tool and armor recipes for use. Then there’s the even more powerful iron tools and weapons.
